Exhibition Old Russian Church Paintings in Copies by Soviet Artists

The event features exhibits from the collections of the Andrei Rublev Museum, many of them displayed for the first time. In total, about seventy artworks by ten artists are exhibited.

      During the Soviet era, a huge number of churches were destroyed, while others decayed without proper care. Under such conditions, copying was the only way to preserve the church paintings for future study.

      The need to make copies of church painting was noted by Mikhail Lomonosov long back, however, it came to be done purposefully only at the end of the 1820s. With the beginning of the twentieth century and the advent of Soviet power, the task of preserving the church painting became even more acute.

      Representatives of the Russian Academy of Arts appreciate the enormous contribution of copyist artists to the preservation of the national cultural and religious heritage of Russia.

Where: the Zurab Tsereteli Art Gallery at address 19/11, bldg. 2, Prechistenka Street, next to metro station Kropotkinskaya and Park Kultury, Moscow.
